Members

SUN CSA Laos has over 70 members, including Lao Non-Profit Associations, International Non-Government Organisations, social enterprises and coordination bodies.

All members work together with the Government of Lao PDR to improve the nutrition status of communities across the country. They work in a variety of sectors, including health, agriculture, education and the economic sector, to name a few. They also work across many provinces and districts in Lao PDR.

Become a Member

SUN CSA Laos is always open to new members. Our member organisations work on many different issues in Laos – agriculture, health, education, WASH, Gender Equality, and many others. What we all have in common is the desire to improve nutrition within these sectors.

There are two types of members in SUN CSA Laos. Full members, which are any non-government organisation that wishes to improve nutrition in Lao PDR. These can be international or national organisations. See below for the criteria. Associate Members are those organisations who are not registered in Lao PDR or are individuals who are not affiliated full time with an organisation but are active in improving nutrition.

If you have any questions about becoming a member, or wish to register as a member, please contact SUN CSA Laos via email.
